This is a Polish page, “Zjebany” means “shitty”. So this isn’t the actual source, but where I found it. The page has lots of awful stuff on it.
Submitter Comment: I know, I couldn’t believe it either…
What’s Awful: It appears this person has been wearing that bolt & nut in their stretched lobe. Inappropriate material for wearing in a stretched lobe, the weight would’ve also been ridiculously too much for the lobe to handle, and it’s obviously caused a lot of damage.
How Can It Be Fixed: Seek medical help immediately. And get an earlobe reconstruction.
WEAR YOUR EARMUFFS! (Stretched Lobes and Frostbite)

Submitter’s Comments: Was reading ModBlog again, came across this cautionary tale of keeping your lobes nice and warm during these winter months! This man went out snowboarding and his lobes became frostbitten.
What’s Awful?: He didn’t take proper precaution against the winter weather, so his poor lobes almost fell off.
How to Fix?: Wear earmuffs when you go out in the snow! Or switch your titanium/steel eyelets for something that’s less likely to freezeeeee fast!
Happy Winter, ya’ll!
I know I posted this story as an answer to someone’s question earlier in the season, but i’ll post this just as a reminder to keep those lobes warm. :)
WARNING: GRAPHIC CONTENT
What’s wrong: A horrific infection either caused by un-sterile equipment/environment, or someone not cleaning their new ink properly, if at all.
How to fix it: Take care of yourself. Clean your tattoo as instructed for the provided time period, and make sure you go to a clean and qualified shop that uses sterile equipment.
Just a TAD unsanitary…
(SOURCE)- Tumblr’s ‘Fuck Yeah, Stick n’ Poke!’
Submitter’s Comments: Was lurking through the SNP blog, and came across this. As stated, it’s someone sitting on a toilet, at school, getting a stick n poke tattoo.
What’s Awful?: No gloves, done in the most unsanitary spot in the entire universe, besides a dumpster. They may be underage if it’s being done in ‘school,’ so they very likely may regret it in the future. Do you know how many fecal particles are flying around there right now?! Ugh!
How Can it Be Fixed?: Stop. Doing. Things. That. Licensed. Professionals. Are. Trained. To. Do… :|! Only use the bathroom to relieve yourself, not give yourself a new ‘body mod.’
I don’t think it’s the original source, but that’s where I found it.
Submitter comment: All I have to say about this is “what the actual fuck”
What’s awful: Huge blowout, plenty of tearing, also looks like it could have some kind of infection in the mix. This is basically a shit sandwich. Obviously this person has tried to stretch way too quickly, irresponsibly, probably used imporper tools and methods and not taken ANY care of their ear. Something this bad doesn’t happen over night!
How it can be fixed: Stop stretching immediately. Do not put any jewellery in there, don’t even downsize! Just care for it like a wound. Do some saline soaks, maybe a bit of massage. Let that fucking abomination completely heal up and shrink down. Then have either the blowout removed or the lobe reconstructed by a mod artist/plastic surgeon. And only then, when it’s fully healed up, seek out some good stretching advice and begin again but properly this time!
SUBMITTER’S COMMENT: Came across this beauty on good ol’ Facebook. You can clearly see how it does not look like Jack and Sally. This Sally is certainly a lot more scary than she’s supposed to be.
WHAT’S AWFUL: The frame piece isn’t that bad, but the actual characters are just almost unrecognizable. One of the sad parts is the drawing done before hand is a lot better and more detailed in the characters, but still just bleck.
HOW IT CAN BE FIXED: Maybe with some serious detailing to fix it up, or just a REALLY big cover up. Or just always where pants.
YOU’RE DOING IT WRONG! lol

Submitter’s Comments: Was looking up “piercing fistula” in Google images.
What’s Awful: Dat ‘surface piercing’ lol
How to Fix: Take it da fuq out and go to a reputable shop!
SUBMITTER COMMENT: I just saw this on my dash, and for the sake of the infant, i hope this is fake.
what’s awful? does it need to be asked?? stretching an infants earlobes? are you serious?!?!
how it can be fixed: don’t mess with your babies ears, please? wait until their old enough to make that decision for themselves
SUBMITTER’S COMMENT: I saw this status on my newsfeed…
WHAT’S AWFUL:Using a piercing gun shouldn’t even be used at all, let alone for an industrial bar?! On herself, and a belly button, that’s crazy & not to mention she’s going to be piercing other people as well..
HOW IT CAN BE FIXED:DON’T PIERCE YOURSELF, don’t use a piercing gun, and please do not pierce other people. Go to a professional and do it the right way.
Submitters comment: I found this scrolling through Facebook this morning. A friend of mine thought it would be a grand idea to shove an earring he found through an old piercing.
What’s awful: Well, from the looks of it, he just ‘found’ the earring. It was definitely not sterilized because I know for a fact he doesn’t have an autoclave, and I doubt he has a tattoo/piercing shop around at that is open at 5:30 in the morning. He also does not need to be sticking a dull-ended piece of jewelry into a closed hole. That’s NEVER “always kool”.
How it can be fixed: Go to a professional piercer to have it re-pierced.
